What is EduStream?
EduStream provides faculty with access to over 5,000 close-captioned professionally produced videos including content from Dallas TeleLearning and Ambrose Video, free for all CCCs to use in their courses.
Edustream is also an electronic depository. Faculty may upload their own digital files to EduStream and create links to the content within Blackboard. This is an ideal place to store files such as .pdf files, image intensive PowerPoint or video files. Files are only available to your students ensuring security, privacy, and copyright.
All digital files on EduStream must be closed-captioned to meet accessibility requirements. Additionally, all digital files must meet copyright requirements.
Thanks to a grant from the CCC Systems Office and a partnership with The San Bernardino Community College District (SBCCD), all California Community Colleges have free use of “EduStream.org,” the CCC’s centralized digital repository.
How to Get Started
Contact your college's EduStream Site Administrator for an account. Faculty will need to submit a Terms of Service Agreement to their EduStream Site Administrator prior to account activation.

Important: Firefox Browser has better results when using EduStream. After downloading, copy and paste this link (www.cuyamaca.edu/library) in the FireFox Browser.
Sometimes a video that you want to watch won't display in the browser.
This document explains the cause of this and steps to take to get the video or other content to display correctly.
Legal Copies and Uses
If you use the Edustream media solution to store your files, you must still comply with copyright law and Fair Use principles. You are personally responsible for any content you upload and it is your responsibility, separate from that of Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District, to be certain your materials are legal to copy and use.
Accessibility and ADA 508 Compliance
Please remember that you are required to provide accessible formats for all online content, whether or not students with disabilities are actually registered for your course. For video that means captioning.
Grant funds are available for captioning. -Application process-
